MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

Greetings Chargers and welcome back!  

The end of summer is always a bittersweet time.  Certainly, we will miss the weather, vacationing, and the extra time with our families and friends.  Perhaps you can't wait for school to open because you are tired of hearing the words..."I'm bored!"   Whatever the case may be, it is our sincerest hope that you had a wonderful summer and are ready for our upcoming school year.  Our team has been busy preparing for a great school year and have several new initiatives underway.  We are looking forward to sharing our new endeavors with you at our Back to School Night, Tues. September 9th beginning at 6:30 pm.  A letter will be sent home the first week of school with further details, but please save the date!

Please share with your child that we are very excited to see them on Monday, August 31st!  Until then...enjoy the final days of summer!
